    you hit the nail on the head, anything donated will be a drop in the bucket and SV or anyone else would be kidding themselves if they think this will help.  I doubt these funds would be enough to hire on a dev so I just can't understand where the money would go or how it would speed development in any way. 

    They have to be low sub wise, I just can't see them holding that many active accounts.  I'd easily say no greater then 500 if even that.

    Correct- But not only will it not speed up development- It will slow it down.

    Remember all the "cannot update because we are busy working" comments- (as if taking three seconds to update would hinder their work)? Well, if updating a forum would have slowed develpoment, what will making some new items (for peope who donate) updating the website to add the donations feature, etc, do?

    Again- "dear community we cannot update you on progress for the last four months because we are hard at work.."

    Now- "Dear community, we are going to add a bunch of shit and it wont slow down progress"

    =/

    -Confused....

    Shrug.. to be honest, who cares at this point. Whatever they think will help them, DFUW is just around the corner at this point and hopefully will be less of a broken arena the original game was. I am checking it out for sure.

    I personally care, my disdain for SV is strong after my dealings with them and I won't stop getting the word out. Seen some shady stuff do down.

    Regarding DF, let's hope aven doesn't screw it up. They have a good chance at snatching up some subs if they put out an awesome game.

    im intrigued to know at what point in your time playing MO did your opinion of SV turn to distain?

    there are 2 types of mmo, imitators and innovaters.

    Me?

    Hmmmmm- Somewhere between Blatant lie #53,457 and #72,698.... Granted, the 20,000 (or so) lies between those two points came within probably a three Month span of time- So actually pinpointing which Lie is a rough one.

    However, I would  be glad to discuss this in another thread- In fact, might be fun to try and collect all the lies and scam moves in one place- This is just another scam move in a very long list.

    -But THIS thread is to try and talk about the latest SV scam- "Donations" and I would hate to see it derailed into an attemopt at pinpointing which SV lie/scam/rip off has turned "Our opinion into disdain"- Since the amount of things they have done which have been underhanded and shady would take a hell of a lot of Internetz- Far more Internetz than we currently have here. =P

    It's "disdain" and not to be rude, but I don't feel particularly inclined to provide you the specifics in this thread. It was a multitude of things and i started to notice fairly early, though I stuck around for some time hoping for the best.
     

    I think Phil said it best above.

    Hi guys.

     

    Well I'm getting kind of tired writing about how shit MO is, but MO is not yet getting tired of becoming even shittier. So I'd like to say:

     

    Oh my god.

    http://www.mortalonline.com/forums/threads/donations-opened.80518/

    "When you donate to Mortal Online's development, you're helping us reach for the game's incredible potential in many ways. When you purchased Mortal Online and paid subscription fees we only receive a small fraction of that income Q.Q; however, with donations 100% of all funds go directly into Mortal Online's continued development!

    At the end of each month, that month's top donor will get a one on one interview with Henrik to get your questions answered. These will be posted for all to see."

     

    ...

    "Hurrrr it wasn't SV's idea"

     

    They.. actually.. implemented a donate 1,000 $ button.  Why not a donate 10,000 $ button and the winner gets to lick Henrik's balls?

    Hi Henrik. I know you're reading this and I bet you laughed because it's true.

     

     

    Now go go go. Support the game's INCREDIBLE POTENTIAL

    Wow, it's nice that they post the highest donors.  Then we can see in real-time, just how little money they get... I'm willing to bet they get maybe a couple people donating $250.... which means the whole campaign might net them $1000-2000 total.... or enough to last about a day, given their current spending rates.
  • YojimboBimboYojimboBimbo virginia beach, VAPosts: 162Member
    Lol @ the responses. The MO community is as daft as the developers it seems. Still making posts requesting features that were supposed to be in two years ago and bad support and they donate cash.
  • HancakesHancakes flint, MIPosts: 1,045Member

    "The largest monthly donor will receive an exclusive Q&A with Henrik"  LMAO  (pants are optional)

     

     

    Simply pathetic

    Paratus pulling in the bronze for November, doesn't having Starvault employees "donate" negate the whole thing?

    If they only put this much effort into the game. image

    I am half tempted to donate just out of the sheer value the MO soap opera gives me.

    This is the game that keeps giving image

    Ha, didn't take them much time to get rewards for that in, comparing to vet rewards.
  • deathshrouddeathshroud londonPosts: 1,366Member

    "In MO, even the haters are hardcore!" - ltank

  • SaintPhilipSaintPhilip Bree, MIPosts: 713Member

    LOL- Customer service is fantastic (concernning donations)- Hell, Henrick and every other Red name is posting immediate help for anyone having trouble with pay pal.

    Funny you cannot get a GM in game to get you unstuck, can hardly get any quaestions answeed- But Damn, SV can delete posts in a heartbeat and apparently help people figure out issues with Pay Pal with HASTE. HASTE Baby!!!!

    Customer Service is TOP fucking NOTCH when folks are trying to donate. lolz.

    Anyone else finding it lulzworthy that they can't even get a fucking donation button to work?

  • rojoArcueidrojoArcueid hell, NJPosts: 6,772Member Uncommon

    SV doesnt really know how to properly run a game, and they dont even have the heart to improve the game for their community.

    Im totally OK with donations on F2P games. If i happen to pay a subscription and they ask me to donate as well..... i think i would ask them to share the weed with me. Those donations are just another way to call cash shop on a sub based game that is failing because of the developers being [add word here]....

    just shut down the game or sell the licence to a more capable and serious company.

    The sad thing is they couldn't update the site for awakening, but they got that donate button up and running! Such a joke of a company.
